Species may respond to climate change by shifting in abundance and distribution, by going extinct, or by evolving. Predicting which will occur is difficult. Climate change may lead to alterations in both abiotic and biotic components of selection. Although there is evidence that abundant genetic variation exists in some species which can respond to such selection, other species seem to have little genetic variation for key characters determining distribution and abundance. Moreover, climate… CONTINUE READING
